I have found that my pointe shoes get dirty (up and down) along my big toe. At first I thought it was because I was dragging my foot along the floor in tendu back somehow, but my friend said she thinks that in sous-sus my feet aren't really turned out so the sole of my foot that is in front is getting the other shoe dirty. Has anyone seen this before? is this a serious problem?

Well, Denise, the first person to check this out with - is your teacher.<P>That being said I have usually found my pointe shoes getting dirty along the side of my big toe and that is from standing in B+ position, I think.<P>But you are saying your shoe gets dirty along the front? not the side? That would seem to indicate the foot is not turned out to the back. Check it in the mirror in tendu to the back and see if the foot is turned out. Pointe to the back and hide the heel behind the foot (so you can't see the heel in the mirror). <P>Then spring up to sous-sus from that position. And watch what happens in the mirror. Even better, get your teacher to watch it with you.
